Associate Somatic Psychotherapist
Have a particular life obstacle you’re trying to overcome? Are you feeling overwhelmed during the times of COVID-19? As a committed, professional Associate Somatic Psychotherapist in San Francisco, your well-being and mental strength is my number one priority. Forming the connection between body and mind is the path to wholeness and healing.
My practice is based on the belief that every individual is moving towards a place of well-being, and that there is a natural wisdom of the body which can be cultivated in this process of forming. My clinical approach can be defined as client-centered. I bring all of myself to this work and care deeply about my clients and what they have to share. I am guided by different somatic and psychodynamic modalities/ theories such as Formative Psychology, Trauma-Informed, Attachment Theory, and Jungian Psychology. I use these approaches to offer support and guidance to adults, adolescents, children, and families.
My own lived experience has set me on the path towards wholeness, and due to this I have a real commitment to providing trauma-informed, body-accepting, LGBTQ+ friendly, and a social-justice oriented somatic practice.
The foundation of our work begins with strengthening the connection between body and mind, and forming a healthy relationship to the self. My clinical interests include but are not limited to working with Anxiety and Depression, Exploring Identity Parameters and Core Beliefs, Stress Reduction, Inner-Child Work, Psychedelic Integration and processing different forms of Trauma.
Having trouble communicating with your partner? Feeling stuck, confused, or overwhelmed? My approach to couples therapy is to shed light onto the relational dynamics, and to promote honest and authentic communication between partners, so that new possibilities can emerge within the relationship.
In my therapy sessions, we’ll work to solve current problems and improve positive thinking and behavior. I will help you “re-frame” your reactions and provide you with valuable tools to cope with life’s obstacles. Exploring the family dynamics with curiosity and care is key, and can often lead to shifts in perspective.
